Voted as best wedding coordinator, by Vogue Magazine, Jo Gartin shares inspirational anecdotes and ideas for a truly unique and creative wedding for the bride-to-be in Jo Gartin's Weddings. There are valuable planning tips throughout, with elegant pictures that encourage you to start making the wedding of your dreams a reality. This book offers choices for each bride's individual needs and budget, with the aim of making an elegant and memorable wedding day.

Whether your style is more English or contemporary, the style and colors you enjoy the most are taken into account, to make the planning of your dream wedding smooth and enjoyable. Having the book as a reference is like having your personal wedding planner at your finger tips! Beautiful designs for invitations are shared in colored pictures, to inspire your own creations. The ideas are truly fun - just pick a theme, with some guidance from Jo Gartin, and there is no limit to how creative you can be. You won't want to start your wedding plans without reading this book. It will make you smile and energize you to be creative. Even labels for your tables can be conversation pieces and a unique approach doesn't have to cost much. It's amazing how simple details can put a stamp on your personality and set a personal and unique tone for your own wedding.

I like the Origami, nostalgic touch to the menu, that makes for a fun time for all. Gorgeous photos of wedding gowns are shown in different styles, as well as cute flower girls, bridesmaids, flowers and a beautiful bouquet secured by your own personal touch. I love the idea of a bouquet of tulips secured by courtship love letters or by hand written vows. Decorate your reception with gorgeous creations. The program put on Japanese fans is yet another personal touch you may want to add - or it may inspire you to come up with your own ideas. Customize the hors d'oeuvres, main course and desserts, so that everything about your wedding day is memorable. Delicious and tantalizing wedding cakes, welcome gifts for the guests and even suggestions for anniversary gifts are included. Enjoy the book's gorgeous photos, lovely, creative inspirations and friendly, detailed tips.

Grooms-to-be can give the gift of this book to their bride-to-be, women to their friends, mothers to their daughters. Jo Gartin's Weddings will inspire you to apply your unique personality and flair to help make your dream wedding a reality.
